    Some say in order to save battery it is a good thing to turn SSH off but others say that it doesn't drain your battery as long as you're not using it to transfer anything. I read some posts reporting that sbsettings crashed and rebooted the ipod after turning ssh off. So, what do you guys think is the best thing to do?

    Well, since you have to have your ipod plugged in to ssh, then i keep it on, since when 'm using it, its charging the ipod.

    I never turn mine off since if I do, theres a 50-50 chance that my iPod will lock up.

    I don't think it uses any more battery unless you are actually transferring something through it.

    its just keeping a pathway open and not actually transfering anything so its pretty much the same as leaving your wifi on, no harm done.

    I just turn it off when I go to turn wi-fi off.

    I always turn mine off just in case people know my IP address and logs in. Since all the passwords are the same I don't want people messing with it.

    But yeah, I just leave mine off unless I need it. It's never done anything bad to my iPod.

    For the four-trillionth time, leaving it on takes literally no battery if it's not actively handling a connection. Also, SSH works over wifi, so it doesn't have to be plugged in. And, if you're worried about people logging into your iPod, change the password. Duh.
